Knowledge Management Solutions

Knowledge Management.

"Knowledge Management" is the explicit and systematic management of vital knowledge, and its associated processes of "creation, organisation, diffusion, usage and exploitation". Knowledge Management therefore is not a product which can be purchased by an organisation, but rather a series of strategies embarked upon by an organisation. Today, organisations often categorise this collective effort as "Knowledge Management" and hence, these projects are often labelled accordingly.

DocumentCorp would like to state its value to your organisation by providing you with access to an Information Resource and Knowledge Strategy team' which is a world-leader in this pioneering field across multiple disciplines.

Our Publications touch on how our solutions support "knowledge management" goals by demonstrating our ability to manage documentation centrally while simultaneously allowing GIS, SCADA, SAP, fileNET or other systems to share access cooperatively to open and print documents from these applications. This is world leading Knowledge Management technology combined with outstanding vision attributes.

At DocumentCorp, we represent exactly what world leading organisations are demanding with our combined high level of expertise, exceedingly relevant software development ability and consulting talent.

DocumentCorp's Knowledge Management proposal process will study and report on the cultivation and complex knowledge sharing that is held by individuals within your organisation. Our engagement will deal with the acquisition of knowledge by people and includes recruiting, training and communication strategies. A major strategy for making the best use of shared knowledge is to capture it into an archiving information repository for access by all the entities which make up an organisation. This 'corporate' knowledge continues to exist even after its original human 'holders' are no longer available.

DocumentCorp advocates that any initiative to develop or improve recorded information systems must take into account the full spectrum of needs. The different perspectives of information management, knowledge management and recordkeeping should be considered in parallel and not as unrelated developmental projects.


Why is Knowledge Management important for record managers.

Knowledge Management focuses on cultivating and sharing complex knowledge held by individuals within an organisation. It deals with the acquisition of knowledge by people and includes recruiting, training and communication strategies. A major strategy for making the best use of shared knowledge is to capture it into an archiving repository system for access by all the entities which make up an organisation.

We fully understand and advise that Knowledge Management and Archive Management are different yet complementary activities. Knowledge management focuses more on people, while archive management focuses on documentation and evidence.  However, while knowledge cannot exist without people, people gain knowledge from many different sources of information. They then interpret this information, creating new knowledge which can be documented again in various forms. Due to this circular relationship between documentation and internal knowledge, documented information is also known as 'codified' or 'explicit' knowledge, in contrast to the 'tacit' knowledge which only resides in people's minds.

 

DocumentCorp maintains that documentation is an important source of knowledge because it is unique to an organisation: it relates directly to the business context. Good documentation archives enable staff in organisations to quickly and easily access information quickly and easily.

Documentation archive repositories ensure that documents are created, captured, controlled and remain accessible to the organisation. As such, archive repositories are a fundamental building block for any successful organisation attempting Knowledge Management.

The Archiving Repository proposal is a prerequisite to supporting and growing Knowledge Management strategies and flow-on benefits.
